Support Solid Start


We are exploring funding partners to join us as we continue to launch and develop Solid Start at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. Solid Start will provide the necessary supports and collaborations to advance ZSFG’s capacity to address the comprehensive needs of San Francisco’s families, particularly those who are low-income, uninsured or underinsured, and are from underserved neighborhoods. The initiative targets the “prenatal to three” population, meaning pregnant women and young families with children from birth to age three.

Solid Start was launched in 2015 from the initial vision of a generous private family in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary team of passionate care providers at ZSFG already serving families and children and the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation. We are seeking other philanthropic partners to join us on this exciting public–private partnership to better serve San Francisco’s families.

The San Francisco General Hospital Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and primary philanthropic partner of Zuckerberg San Francisco General, serves as the fiscal sponsor for Solid Start. If you would like to support Solid Start with a gift, please visit the Foundation’s Donate page.
